What drew you to doing impressions? I started doing impressions because of how I grew up. Everyone in my family is deaf (not a joke -- my mom, dad and sister are all completely deaf), so growing up in that family, I couldn't learn how to speak from my family; I learned how to talk by copying all the voices I heard on TV.

Who was your comedic inspiration? One of my comedic inspirations was Dana Carvey, which is why I wanted to do the show.

Why do you think you’ll be America’s favorite impressionist? I don't know that I will be America's favorite, but I do love talking to people who believe that America will love them, because they tend to be the most entertaining to talk to!
